    That's what I don't get. These townhomes were not that old. What years were gravity furnaces used?

    that was not a gravity system. There are supply pipes that go down. That would not work on a gravity system. Its just a tangled ductopus

    Hey- there's no earthquake straps on the water heater!

    Oh wait- that giant 12" return should keep it from falling over.

    Yeah, wow...

    So I really hate it when you can't help the laugh that comes out when the homeowner shows you something like this and you first see it. I used to have that problem a lot when I was younger, but I got a handle on it. I still haven't managed to develop a failproof poker face though. Usually someone has been there before and told the homeowner at least something so when they see me smile they have a response ready.

    People do some crazy stuff. I would love to know what they were thinking on a lot of what we see.

    I still want to know how long it took them to do this vs a normal trunk/branch. That return is really dented from when they changed the water heater. Now I have to figure a way to remove the flex gas line and hard pipe it in. On the right side where it goes in, there is a vertical support beam right in the way. Will probably have to re route from the top and stay out of the way of the coil. It belongs in a museum! Sorry... Couldn't help using Indiana Jones reference.
